Ultra Low-Power Miniaturized Flexible Radio Optimized for Long-Term Battery Operation
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DMEA
Crossfield intends to develop a single chip software radio that is battery operated and can support high data rate wireless applications not currently addressed by off-the-shelf wireless standards such as IEEE802.15.4. By implementing a software radio, a single chip transceiver can interface to multiple transceiver "over the air" standards and can exploit new schemes as needed. The program will take maximum advantage of off-the-shelf CMOS RF designs implemented by Crossfield in 0.35 m and 0.18 m technologies. Certain mixed mode functions may be purchased or subcontracted to accelerate the schedule or to reduce overall program risk. All digital designs will be custom developed using a standard cell approach for the targeted process technology. Crossfield intends to complete the systems engineering and a significant part of the receiver RF design in Phase I. In Phase II, Crossfield will complete the transceiver design, fabricate and test a functioning device. The test device will be fabricated in the process technology defined at the beginning of Phase I.
